Great numbers & well deserved. Living in the area that she's from, I've watched her progress from a very young girl with a dream that sang the National Anthem at Reading Phillies games & sing at local fairs & festivals to become the #1 singing artist on the planet. Her hard work since her pre-teen years paid off.

TIM & FAITH AND TAYLOR, OH MY

The week’s most substantial debut is The Rest of Our Life, the joint set from Arista Nashville supercouple Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. That album, which looks headed for a bow in the neighborhood of triple digits, is all but assured a #2 SPS chart debut—right behind the returning champ, Big Machine’s Taylor Swift, who just topped our chart with 1.29m.

How will reputation fare in its second #1 week, following the undisputed Queen of American Pop's record-setting fourth million-plus bow? Will its falloff mirror that of predecessor 1989, which dropped by 75% in week two? Could Thanksgiving shoppers make that decline less steep? How will her historic numbers affect her Grammy odds? Will she pop up at the AMAs? Don’t touch that dial.

In the meantime, let’s see how Tim and Faith are looking. Apart from gorgeous, we mean:

Tim McGraw & Faith Hill (Arista Nashville) 95-110k SPS, 90-105k album

In Thanksgiving news, is it wrong to stuff a turkey with weed?

Taylor is sure to be #1 next week too. Anyone knows the last time an artist managed to stay on top for more than one week consecutively ?

Jay Z in late July/early August with 4:44 for 2 weeks.

In the 2 weeks prior to Jay Z, DJ Khaled did it with Grateful.

iHypeMusic wrote:Lol it's ironic how everyone doubted 1989 could sell 1m first week (even industry predictors) when SIO was a massive hit, and LWYMMD has fared relatively quickly and the certainty is high she will do 1m.

But also interesting to note she's coming off a much bigger era (1989) than during 2014 (Red).

It's really a tossup. I'll say 1.25m.

However if she does 750k-1m that's still very impressive despite higher expectations.
Her final number with Billboard is 1.238m (1.216m in pure). I was on target / 12k off. 8-)

Any predictions on her 2nd week drop before it's posted?

I will be surprised if it's below 80% honestly. The second week seems like it's gonna be a hard drop.

YOUR TOP 20: NO REST FOR THE WEARY

Taylor Swift, as expected, will repeat at #1. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill land at #2 with the week’s top debut. Barring any Black Friday surprises, Swift will also hang on to the top spot for a third week. Please note: due to the uncertainty of Thanksgiving evening shopping, our margin of error may be broader than usual. As will our midsections.

1. Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 245-255k SPS, 230-240k Sales
2. *Tim Mcgraw & Faith Hill (Arista Nashville) 110-120k, 105-115k

5. Post Malone (Republic) 37-40k, 4-5k
6. Ed Sheeran (Atlantic) 37-40k, 13-15k
7. 21 Savage, Offset & Metro Boomin (Slaughter Gang/Epic) 34-37k, 2-3k
8. Imagine Dragons (Kidinakorner/Interscope) 31-34k, 13-15k
9. Pentatonix (RCA) 29-32k, 23-26k
10. Lil Uzi Vert (Generation Now/Atlantic) 28-31k, <1k

14. Kendrick Lamar (TDE/Interscope) 26-29k, 5-6k
15. Khalid (Right Hand Music/RCA) 25-28k, 4-5k
16. *Moneybagg Yo & Youngboy Never Broke Again (N-Less Entertainment/Never Broke Again) 22-25k, 4-5k

80% drop.

I don't think Holidays will push her sales up, they'll soften her following drops, this album should top out at 2m by New Year.

Up to her if she's going to be smart and put the album on Spotify.

Not bad for Taylor. I expect a new single to impact soon and keep the album steady.

I was guessing 250-300k for Taylor, but I had no idea. Good numbers all things considered.

I think the upside to a lack of promotion leading up to the album release is that now she can promote the next single and it's still "new". Her 2 televised promos didn't include End Game, so there's a big opportunity.

I wonder if she'll have a Holiday special on network television that they haven't announced yet. Special guests like Ed and Future... sounds great on paper!

Let's not forget how much they overestimated her first week though. It might go down to 225K, 200K or such (hopefully not).

LOL thanks... yeah I’m only interested now because of whitney’s album although I just realized that some albums such as Chris Brown can have like 2k sales but still be no.3 because of streaming, youtube, etc. I find it to be nonsense as I’m 100% sure that streaming stats can easily be manipulated by record companies (youtube views too), but that’s another discussion... In the Hits Daily Double prediction, many albums in the top 20 have less than 1k sales... Artists I’ve never heard of but apparently they get zillions of streams... Album sales get way more revenue than streaming, they shouldn’t be combined... a question, TBG original soundtrack re-entered the itunes and amazon charts strongly, will they also count for BB200 the streams on youtube and spotify of the songs such as IWALY, IHN, IEW that still get tons of views and streams daily?

NB: YouTube does not count towards the Billboard 200 Albums chart; it does so for the Hot 100, only.

And by a huge margin, no one can come close to the numbers she’s pulled in.
